Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2012

VALDOSTA — Local pharmacies and doctors should give notices to their customers who give them business and not surprise them when they suddenly go out of business or  move.

Why is VSU ticketing parents and patrons for parking during a VSU "hosted" event? Several parents received parking citations for parking without a permit during last nights Jazz Concert. As both a parent of a performing student and a VSU Alum, I find this a poor practice. Transportation should not be issuing citations at these events. These lots are actually listed as parking areas for these events on the VSU website. They certainly don't during football games. Even non VSU games.

Somebody is not telling us the truth about the real reasons for removing the McIntosh airplane ...

Really enjoyed the VSU, Valdosta and Lowndes Jazz concert last night held at the Whitehead Auditorium in the VSU Fine Arts Building. Great Job to all!

When the difference in gas prices are 5-10 cents higher, then someone is greedy and taking the public.

I would like to thank KB horse camp and their supporters for the Christmas gifts and the continued prayers for our daughter Emsley. Everyone involved with KB horse camp is absolutly wonderful and we cannot thank you enough!!

Benjamin Franklin said "I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it." The Republican party says let them eat cake.

I would like to thank my teacher from the PLC, Mr. Earp for helping me straighten out my life. Instead of joining a gang I've joined the Air Force.

Rave to VCS for wanting to involve the community in the planning of the new Pinevale Elementary, BUT a HUGE rant that they chose February 14th to have the forum. Hello, is anyone thinking? It's Valentines Day! A day to celebrate your loved ones. Not a day to spend in a school cafeteria discussing floor plans. Have some respect for the families in the community, especially those who have made reservations, well in advance, of the announced meeting.

If the Berrien BOE would clean house at the board office with 49% salaries and triple figure assistants, they wouldn't have to penalize "other" programs, i.e., the medical clinic or local doctors for their "cut" of the dividends. After all, the med clinic was grant funded.

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
